Many of us unconsciously turn on music to help us relieve stress and comfort us when we're feeling down, and according to science there is a good reason for this. Everything in your body has a frequency - from your neurons firings to your heart beating to your breathing rate. Your daily stress, lack of sleep, and other external factors knock us out of our optimal state. Sound therapy aims to return the body and mind to the ultimate frequency, and research has shown that vibro-acoustic stimulation can induce relaxation and lower cortisol levels thereby improving quality of life.
Having worked in event planning and strategy during my previous career, I feel a real need to create time out during a long day of listening, participating, networking, lunching and catching up in between with emails and calls. Let's face it - participants are usually drained after a few hours and the last thing they want to do is another break out session or listen to another speaker - no matter how interesting or inspiring they may be !
If you really want to optimize the experience and optimize peoples' wellbeing, offer them a gong bath at the event. This can be organized in meeting rooms and auditoriums. Talk to me about your individual requirements.
" The Gong is the first and last instrument for the human mind, there is only one thing that can supersede and command the human mind, the sound of the Gong. It is the first sound in the universe, the sound that created this universe. It’s the basic creative sound. To the mind, the sound of the gong is like a mother and father that gave it birth. The mind has no power to resist a gong that is well played. " - Yogi Bhajan
A restorative journey
Sound helps to facilitate shifts in our brainwave state by using entrainment. Entrainment synchronizes our brainwaves by providing a stable frequency which the brainwave can attune to. By using both rhythm and frequency we can entrain our brainwaves and it then becomes possible to downshift our normal beta state (normal waking consciousness) to alpha (relaxed consciousness) and even reach theta (meditative state) and delta (sleep where internal healing can occur).
Release and restore
Emotions and thoughts are released from the subconscious. The Parasympathetic nervous system is ruled by sound. And it regulates the over-worked and over triggered Sympathetic nervous system. Sound is therefore one of the most important healing media that there is.

Planet Gongs are tuned based on the orbital properties of the Earth, the Moon, the Sun, and the Planets according to calculations of Hans Cousto. Thus they resonate in harmony with the cycles of the celestial bodies and communicate a distinct aspect of the “music of the spheres” quoted since the Antique.
Their sound colour is extremely mysterious and conveys an unusual, unfathomable atmosphere. Soul Sound Yoga uses Paiste Sun and Day Sidereal gongs as well as guest gongs each with their own individual properties.
